Banjar Hot Springs Review, Bali
The last hot springs I went to was in Camiguin (Philippines) and I was not very impressed due to the water being not very warm. The water at Banjar Hot Springs isn’t doesn’t exactly have steam coming off it but it is not cold either. In fact, it was almost a perfect temperature.
I do wish it was a tad warmer but one thing I did really enjoy about the Banjar Hot Springs was the fountains so the water can massage you. I stayed under them for most of the time.
It is also pretty easy to get there (if you have a motorcycle) and the Brahma Vihara-Arama Buddhist Temple is also nearby as well as some pretty nice scenery if you ride up/through the hill.
As you enter the Banjar Hot Springs you can park out the front or go a little bit further in if you are on a motorcycle. Im not sure if the parking out the front is free or not but they charge the standard 2000IDR to park you bike once inside.
The entry for the hot springs is an extremely cheap 5,000IDR and you can stay as long as you want. Keep the ticket because the security guard checks it before you enter the “pool” area.
There is the standard street of tourist shops on the way in (picture top-right).
As you walk in the grounds are quite nice. It was not too crowded when I went but I assume on weekends or during the busy tourist season it may be a bit hectic. Perhaps they also jack the entry price to 10,000IDR as that is what I read the entry fee was on some websites.
I saw signs for lockers and massage and there is a small shop that possibly even cooks food.
I had a nice time in Banjar Hot Springs. Together with the Sekumpul Waterfall and the Buddhist Temple it was a nice day out. There is also a scenic view close-by.
Getting to Banjar Hot Springs in Bali
From Lovina beach head west on the main road that follows the coast. It is not very far. Maybe a tad more than 10km and you will see the sign to hang a left for the Banjar Hot Springs (Air Panas). It is signposted all the way to it. If in doubt, ask a local.
